This week we will deviate from our usual bunch of crap to run a series of images intended to promote the idea that the Republicans and Democrats aren’t the only political parties in the U.S. – just the only two that control everything.
Francois Hollande has defeated Nicolas Sarkozy for the office of President of France. Sarkozy’s inability to repair France’s damaged economy has resulted in the election of the first socialist president since Francois Mitterrand left office in 1995. Apparently the French memory lasts about 17 years. It is interesting that they have elected a candidate whose name is that of another country – kind of like if Americans elected a president named Canada.
